DESIGN ONLY : Design Only is the perfect choice for the client who may be short on budget but not on style. You’ll have all the customization and pizzazz of a custom design – without the typical exorbitant costs of a graphic designer. Design Only includes the digital file. You choose whether you want to print the job yourself or have it printed professionally. We are more than happy to answer any questions related to printing. The cost for this service is a flat fee based on the type of item. While design fees will vary depending on the complexity of design, the listing below is a general guideline:
FULL SERVICE: Full Service means we do it all for you – from design to printing to assembly. The costs for Full Service are based on the design fee plus a per piece price. Exact costs vary depending on printing method, paper used, and assembly (where required). Sonicstef Design can help you locate and select the perfect paper and accessories to showcase your custom-designed item. Price estimates are happily provided upon request.
Q: I want a custom design. How do I get started?
A: You have a concept, style, color, and format in mind (or maybe not!). Contact Sonicstef! We start by discussing your event, preferences, anything you think is important. Using your ideas as inspiration, Sonicstef Design does the rest.
Q: How much time does the design process take?
A: Each custom design is as unique as the event it celebrates. The timeframe to create a piece depends on its complexity as well as factors specific to each client. For very special events, a minimum of 4 months is suggested. Sonicstef Design always recommends starting as soon as possible to allow for maximum creativity from us -- and maximum flexibility for you!
Q: What's involved in having a custom design created?
A: Once you’ve decided you’d like Sonicstef Design to custom design your piece, we begin working on it immediately.
The first step is for you to tell us about your event: the style, formality, theme, message, etc.
We create several initial designs tailored for your event, and e-mail them to you for your review. Here’s where you put your personal stamp on your piece. Tell us what you like, what you hate, any preferences you have for changes. We revise it as many times as needed to get it just right. (This review and redesign process is what usually takes the most time.) Don’t be shy! All revisions are included in the cost of the design...because we want your final piece to be just as you envisioned it.
